Abstract

Between 1848 and the outbreak of the First World War, the map of Europe underwent a dramatic transformation. Two major powers (Germany and Italy) achieved their unification. Elsewhere, nationalist aspirations against Ottoman rule in the Balkans led to a series of revolts and insurrections; the disasters encountered by the Turks after 1877 led to the independence of Romania and Bulgaria. The Balkan Wars further changed the map of South-East Europe.
